As part of their science unit, fifth-graders in Karen Coyle’s class at Deauville Gardens East Elementary School each made their own terrariums. After learning about the earth’s major systems – atmosphere, hydrosphere, geosphere and biosphere – the students conducted the activity as part of the earth and space systems unit. The terrariums, which show how rock, water, air and life all act together in earth’s major systems, are an example of how the earth’s parts all work together.
